A Well Being, at Work

A Well Being, at Work

I ate too much ice cream last night and my stomach is upset. I’m worried about dad because I’ve recently moved him into a retirement home. I’m stressing about having enough business next year and I feel anxious about all of the uncertainty around politics and the economy. Other than that, I’m fine. Sound familiar? I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to ‘be well’. We’re always asking each other, ‘how’s it going?’ ‘How are you doing?’ If you’re asking me, I am happy to say as of this writing, ‘I’m well,...

There’s a New Wolf in Town

Posted by on Aug 11, 2011 in Keynote, productivity, Uncategorized, workshops | 2 comments

The sheer speed, volume, and ready access to information, anywhere and anytime presents us with unique unprecedented challenges when it comes to what we choose to ‘feed our psyche.  This, it seems, is the ‘new wolf in town’. Aggressive, cunning, and stealthy, this wolf has an insatiable need for constant stimulation, wreaking havoc on our nervous systems and peace of mind.  This wolf wants us do more, keep busy 24/7 and 365; checking and rechecking  email, texting,  buying the latest whatever, joining social networks (simply to have...

The world is changing and so are we

Everywhere we look we see a world transforming and changing, dramatically and undeniably. Internet and communication technologies are helping to ‘dispel the myth of separation’, evoking levels of empathy and compassion that already exists within each of us. Exposure to a steady stream of images and information, often in real time, puts us ‘on the ground’ and right into the lives and struggles of our human family.  We are witness, for example, to the transformation taking place throughout the Middle East and North Africa, a struggle...

Gut Buster Moments

Gut Buster Moments

We’ve all had them, those deep belly laughs, ‘gut buster’ moments. They feel so good- the best cure for stress and negativity. We need more of them! Imagine a world in which everyone laughs out loud and uncontrollably at least once a day. I’m talking; ‘please stop, no really please stop you’re killing me’, kind of belly aching laughter that seems to happen so rarely but is so good for us. Seriously, I’m talking about ‘I haven’t laughed this hard since the time Bob sneezed during the...

Are you practicin’ relaxin’?

Modern life pushes to do more, think less, and react to whatever seems most urgent. Sure, we get a lot done, but on the whole, we’re not very happy while we very stressed out! Stress is  killing us, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The number of American workers who consider stress to be a major problem in their lives has more than doubled during the past ten years. 62% percent of American workers say their workload has increased over the last six months; 53% say work leaves them “overtired and overwhelmed. Moreover, the...

Get a lot done but not feeling very accomplished?

Posted by on Dec 30, 2010 in Uncategorized | 5 comments

Another year over and what have you done?  Seems like a good time to reflect and think about our accomplishments from 2010. Trouble is, when asking my audience about this very thing, most will say how busy and overworked they feel, but not necessarily very accomplished! Accomplishment: something successfully done, completed, fulfillment I must admit, when I first thought about what I have accomplished I felt a little depressed. I know I got lots of stuff done so why was I coming up empty? Upon reflection, I’ve found a few ways in which I...

Early Morning Humility

Posted by on Oct 22, 2010 in Keynote, Uncategorized, workshops | 0 comments

Just recently I had an early morning flight from San Diego to the east coast. For some reason I figured that because my flight was at 6am, the security line would be short and I breeze right through. I don’t know why I assumed this but I did and was wrong!  The line was long and I immediately felt anxious and began to worry that I would not make my flight. I tend to stress about flying anyway; whom will I sit next to? Will my flight be on time? And so on. So my anxiety and stress level is building. I am looking for a way to get close to the...

In A Rut? Make A Decision

Posted by on Sep 28, 2010 in Keynote, Uncategorized, workshops | 0 comments

In my keynotes and workshops I’m often asked about  the process  I went through in order to be more productive and with a lot less stress. In a way it wasn’t really that hard. One day about five years ago I got sick and tired of trying to deal with my email.  I really needed to learn a better way to work! I really like what I do but the very process, along with the shear volume and complexity of what I had to deal with was simply overwhelming! I made the decision to learn a better way to work. I faced the reality that what I was...

Transform Yourself Through Journaling

Posted by on Aug 24, 2010 in Keynote, workshops | 0 comments

I had been thinking about keeping a journal for a very long time, years in fact. ‘One day’, I thought, ‘I really will.’ I think I somehow knew the transformative power that expressing myself through writing might have. In fact the few times I tried it I felt really good afterward. Putting pen to paper, or clicking away on the keyboard usually left me feeling a bit clearer with some perspective I would not have had otherwise. Although I liked the feeling of have written a few good pages, I never felt like I could stick with it. I used...

We are living in an extraordinary time, in the very infancy of the technological revolution. The breakthroughs and positive benefits of living in our ‘techno-world’ are wide ranging and touch every area of our lives, from communications and entertainment to science and medicine. 21st century technology is also changing our perspectives on what’s possible and our potential to make a difference at home, at work, in our communities, and the world. We also know from our own experience that computers and technological devices, all of which...
